Bear or Bull: Hey Mr. D.J.

Is it time for D.J. to keep playing that song on and on and on? Before we can get the party started, let's rewind and take a look at how we got here. The Arizona Cardinals selected David Johnson in the third round (#86 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. Bruce Arians raved about him in May: "Very, very bright. The kid can do anything as far as a wide receiver, running back, fullback...

49ers’ Alex Boone blasts NFL officials: ‘Those refs sucked’

There were some horribly inept penalties called Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Arizona Cardinals, and Alex Boone is “sick” about how the league’s referees continually ruin the game he loves to play.

Bruce Arians on officiating crew: ‘They can’t count to three’

Bruce Arians clearly fears no reprisal for his critical comments regarding the officiating crew that presided over the Arizona Cardinals-San Francisco 49ers tilt Sunday. Or at the very least he doesn’t seem to care if he’s fined over what he said. “The officials were struggling,” he said. “Mightily. They can’t count to three.” Arians was specifically referring...

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers: 2015 Week 12 NFL Pick

Arizona Cardinals (8-2) at San Francisco 49ers (3-7) The Cardinals were favored by just 8 points in this game against the 49ers on the early line last week, but the line has since moved to 10. Ordinarily, I like to fade significant week-to-week line movements because they tend to be overreactions to a single week, but I still don’t think this line is high enough, even with the...

San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals do battle this Sunday

Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, the 8-2 Arizona Cardinals are coming to town Sunday to take on our lowly 3-7 San Francisco 49ers. After a convincing victory in Seattle two weeks ago and another hard-fought win last week against Cincinnati, a game preview is probably unnecessary, as a Cardinals victory is the almost certain outcome. But for the sake of our own sanity let’s take...

Arizona radio station is trying to fund Carson Palmer’s “Thrust Fund” to pay his NFL fine

The NFL does not take kindly to players making gestures toward the opposing fans, so while one Arizona quarterback fist-pumping and gyrating on the sideline is just boys being boys one week… …if another does something far less egregious but turns his body toward the stands… …well that warrants a five-figure fine.

WATCH: Arizona Cardinals Rookie WR J.J. Nelson Catches First Career Touchdown Pass

When J.J. Nelson was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals he had to be a little excited. The Cardinals are a passing team which would make his chances of getting on the field and playing good (assuming he can earn game time in practice). Of course the hard part for him is the collection of quality receivers the cardinals already have. With so many quality receivers he is going to have...
